    Tin-foil hats at standby

    Long story short, I've been posting more on UF recently and not getting notifications to my hotmail account:
    Not through my e-mail client
    Not on the website(spam folders included)


    So, I figure. I'll give my Yahoo! account instead.

    Lo and behold, I'm getting e-mails again.

    I wonder if we could do an experiment to see if I'm not alone

    No one really knows how Hotmail decides which incoming mails it lets go through. I also can't send email to Hotmail accounts from my mail server. I have to use my ISPs, which can't be that much different...

    Are we seeing the emergence of Skynet!?

    And from Microsoft of all companies

    It's just weird how, all of a sudden - nothing.

    I might see about a Gmail account, I've heard good things about it

    GMX is, in my opinion, the best.

    Just to be clear, you are saying there is a coloration between you making more posts in UF and your Hotmail account somehow not getting emails? Trust me, on the VERY long list of things that Microsoft have to worry about, you making posts to UF is very close to the bottom.

    The only thing that Hotmail seems to block are legit emails, the thousands of enhancement advertisements seem to be the only thing that gets through.

    Well, not really thinking me specifically, or UF. There's just no obvious reason for it
    But I was thinking they maybe drop priority of messages from domains known to present linux in a good light.

    Love GMX!

    Wish they wouldn't stop it working on non Firefox / safari / IE browsers...

    Mind you been a while since I last tried GMX on Opera.. I use GMX mostly for my phones email thanks to the POP3 thing.

    Gmail provides POP3 and SMTP for free, so I can send and receive email via my phone.

    This.

    Don't get me started about Gmail's IMAP. It's why I don't use Gmail anymore.
